Amazing nature, kind people, comfortable infrastructure
Too clowdy, sometimes unsatisfactory visibility
Enjoy the nature, the history and the religion!
We decided to drive into los picos to see a couple of lakes. Seemingly out of nowhere a storm struck. Between the storm and my memories of truly treacherous mountain roads in Colombia that I was on as a child, I got really scared. I felt more comfortable covering my eyes when we hit those hairpins...I'm a wuss.more
The best way of exploring the myriad of corners and villages of the Picos de Europa is by car. If you're going from the Leon Region, take the N-625 national road wich leads into the Sajambre Valley.

It is not a big problem, but you can be aggrieved. Be attentively and don't step into a "cowbomb". There are many and many cows on muntains and they making "mine-fields" everywhere.
As I mentioned befor in my previouse tips there are many cows in the national park "Picos de Europa". Time to time there can meet bulls too. Animals are not agresive, they look very friendly, but it isn't a good idea to touch them. Animals are animals.
Unique Suggestions: If you became in a situation when too many cows around you, don't make quick and fast movings, try to control the situation and don't turn your back to animals.
Fun Alternatives: Just be atentive, don't boter cows.
